US justice department claims Facebook unfairly overlooked American workers

A new lawsuit says the social media giant favored those with H1-B visas, ‘refusing’ to recruit, consider or hire qualified US workers

The US Department of Justice accused Facebook on Thursday of discriminating against American workers, saying in a new lawsuit that the social media giant had given hiring preferences to temporary workers, including those who hold H-1B visas.

The DoJ said that Facebook had “refused” to recruit, consider or hire qualified US workers for more than 2,600 jobs that in many cases paid an average salary of $156,000 a year.
